Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article introduces the special issue on "Connecting Virtues," which aims at advancing virtue theory by bringing into a conversation works on the virtues in epistemology, ethics, and political philosophy. This collection covers several key themes within virtue theory. It includes ground-breaking articles offering original solutions to long-standing issues in virtue theory, such as the plausibility of different lists of virtues, the relationship between virtues and the vices that oppose them, and the connection between moral and intellectual virtues. In addition, the collection offers insights into cutting-edge fields of application of the topic of virtue, such as the role of intellectual virtues in an age of neuromedia, virtuous dispositions related to social epistemology, and the role of some neglected virtues for political philosophy.
